Autumn on it's way

Autumn leaves     watercolour © Elizabeth Tyler
I was inspired to paint this watercolour on a windy day at the beach a couple of years ago. When I came home I reconstructed the scene in the studio. It was important to get the light and shadows right so I used only one light source (a daylight lamp) and suspended the flying leaf up with a fishing line.


  1. I love the idea of the falling leaf! Every year I attempt to portray the great colors of the fall - you got it just right!
